How is BPPV assessed and treated by a therapist?

BPPV is position dependent. The vestibular therapist uses specific head and body positions to test which canals may be affected. Since this is a mechanical issue, MRI/CT scan are of no use. No medications can help you get these crystals back in position.

Vestibular therapists take specialized training in determining the type of eye movements and provide specific maneuvers to treat them. Common maneuvers are the Epley’s and Barbeque roll.

It usually takes 3-5 sessions to eliminate these crystals from the canals. The efficacy of these maneuvers is 93-95%.
